Workshops on High Bandwidth Applications Using Internet 2 / vBNS Workshop on Digital Libraries

On March 26, 1998, the Ohio Supercomputer Center, OhioLINK, and OSC Networking will sponsor a one-day conference on digital libraries. The session will enable representatives from Ohio's higher education institutions and industry to share ideas on digital library research and form working groups that could pursue opportunities for network experiments using the current infrastructure and possible funded research. Faculty, technical staff, and industry personnel with interests in digital libraries are expected to attend.

Ohio private, liberal arts colleges offer courses in parallel computing

Capital University in Columbus and Ohio Northern University in Ada are often recognized for their programs in music, law or a traditional arts program, and...computer science? Now they are. Both universities now offer courses in parallel computing to undergraduates. These types of classes are usually offered only at major research universities.

Alliance PACS Establish Repository

The Partners for Advanced Computational Services (PACS) User Services and Training committee, chaired by Frank Gilfeather of the University of New Mexico/Maui High Performance Computing Center, established top-level categories and identified the necessary tracking information for the Alliance training module repository during its December 1997 meeting at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

The repository will provide a common location for researchers to find current training materials in a timely and efficient manner. NCSA will build the database, forms, and scripts.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Training Courses Contribute to Efforts to Strengthen National Security

The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) internationally-recognized training expertise will now be used to help reduce vulnerability in our nation’s information system.

Recently, The Ohio State University (OSU) was designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As part of OSU’s designation, OSC will provide NSA-certified training and participate as a member of OSU’s Consortium for IAE.
